Summer evening in Luzern

Few days ago, when the sunny weather and summer temperatures finally reached Switzerland, I went for an evening cycle ride around Lucerne.

Lake Lucerne’s Beaches: Strandbad Tribschen

Luzern is located by the Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee). In the hot summer, as is this year’s, is the perfect spot to cool down. There are many public beaches all around the lake. Some are free of charge, while others charge entrance fee.
